The long season

Front Cover
The classic inside account of a baseball year by a major league pitcher. It begins, appropriately, with the winter doldrums and sweating out a new contract, then follows the author and his family to spring training in Florida and through the full season's schedule to October. One of the best baseball books ever written. It is probably one of the best American diaries as well. --New York Times Book Review
